Surrealist and Macabre Sculpture by Rebecca Stevenson

On:Axisweb

Rebecca Stevenson is an artist living and working in London. She is best known for her visceral and baroque sculpture in resin and wax.

“My work is concerned with the visceral and the sensual. It draws upon anatomical drawing and botanical illustration, but occupies a liminal territory between scientific enquiry and the subjective, imaginary body.”

Stevenson’s work investigates the relationship between innocence, consumption and desire. In each piece, a sculpted animal is cut, manipulated and refigured. These interventions result in outbursts of colour and texture, twisting the material or “flesh” of the sculpture into forms resembling flowers or fruit.

Drawing on the traditions of vanitas and still life, her work explores the contradiction inherent in the “nature morte“, in which transient everyday objects – bread, meat, flowers, fruit – are immortalised and elevated by the processes of art. Rebecca Stevenson

The Disturbingly Dark Paintings by Nicola Samorì

Italian artist Nicola Samorì was born in 1977 in Forlì. Nowadays, the artist lives and works in Bagnacavallo. Nicola Samorì’s paintings and sculptures are inspired by the work of the old masters but with the addition of scary motives to achieve this dark mood.

Nicola Samorì is Baroque-style paintings simultaneously evoke a sense of romance and violence. His Renaissance figures, first painted against classically dark backgrounds and bathed in chiaroscuro lighting, are then marred with smears of paint layered over their faces or with paint and material scratched away. In some cases, the paint is thinned so as to obscure the figure’s details behind a haze.

Working in a style influenced by Baroque portraiture—for example, the rich colors and heavy shadows—Samori intensifies the emotion and drama by mutilating his subjects. Faces are painted over or ripped apart, exposing an abstraction of bloody insides; torsos hover omniously in the darkness, their flesh melting away into nothing. By disturbing the human form, Samori disturbs the human mind. His sculptures are created with a similar aesthetic, destroying the image of the body to elicit feelings of unease. By combining classical styles with modern horror imagery, Samori reveals fear as the permeating force that it is, ravaging the lofty realms of art history with its primordial viciousness.

“My work stems from fear: fear of the body, of death, of men. I think my nature as an artist is something like feeling hopeless. Works are just temporary shelters and painting is a leisure place where you can conceal yourself.”

Mystical Dark Symbolism Painting By Tomasz Alen Kopera

Tomasz Alen Kopera was born in Kozuchow, Poland in 1976. He attended the University of Technology in Wroclaw, where he gained a degree in Engineering. Tomasz paints in oil on canvas. Human nature and the mysteries of the Universe are his inspiration. Each painting motivates thought, challenging our initial response. Sometimes darkness will prevail, at other times, light. He is celebrated in visionary art circles for his acute attention to detail, mastery of color and bold use of subject matter.
Since 2005 resides in Ireland where he works in his studio.

In my work I try to reach to the subconscious. I want to keep the viewer’s attention for a longer moment. I would like the spectator to feel the need for a minute of quiet reflection and contemplation.

I usually get my ideas for new paintings in the least expected moments. The idea for new creation just appears in my head. Some ideas come from my wife, we like to sit and talk together for hours, and sometimes these chats then turn into new surprising creations. The most important and also most difficult part of creation is actually visualising the idea, seeing the subject in the eyes of my imagination. Very often while working on a painting, I see an idea for my next work.

Dark Erotic Women Portraits By Ellen Rogers

Norfolk-based analog photographer Ellen Rogers captures vaporous, retro-vintage feminine portraits. Her world combines an oneiric and macabre atmosphere, revealing multiple cultural influences, where women are raised to the rank of muses and mysterious witches. All of her work is analogue, meaning the lady flat out rejects digital in favour of less technically sharp processes. These include shooting inside the dark room and hand-tinting, all to get that Pre-Raphealite thing down pat. Rogers claims that while her technique « is a secret, » it’s « all darkroom based and it isn’t set. It can be a mixture of alternative processes to straight silver gelatine.

My technique is experimentation. » Toying with dark and mysterious iconography, Rogers’s work relays the photographic tradition of abstinents like Julia Margaret Cameron while still seeming essentially modern.

Face-Devouring Photography By Lucas Simões

I’m not sure what it is about our nature that makes us constantly want to mutilate faces — and maybe that is just the simplest explanation for all of our recent zombie activity — but sometimes there’s just nothing more carnally fulfilling than running paper faces under an acid bath of collage, painting, mixed media, whatever.
Brazilian artist Lucas Simões burns photographic portraits, to give them such personality that their remains sometimes come across as grotesque three-headed beasts (ausência series) and sometimes remind us of sparking memories of the past (quem brinca com fogo series).
It takes skills to draw such diversity from such a simple and carnal concept, and for it to evoke such a suprising range of emotions, including sadness, fear, and compassion.

Artist Giacomo Carmagnola uses digital tools to add a unique, glitchy twist to photos of the past. Faces and objects are obscured with long, colorful strands that seem to melt, as if it’s some sort of ooze that’s absorbing the rest composition.

This artist combines the old and new to create symbolic modern images. 25-year old graphic design artist from Italy, Giacomo has built up an impressive body of digital work creating interesting explorations in pixel form. Working with subjects like classic scenes from horror movies, historical photographs or dark figures, his work is a very interesting way or reinterpreting the original image and its meaning!

Creative “Skull-ptures” by Hedi Xandt

Hedi Xandt’s work is everything of modern sculpture madness. The Hamburg based artist of Norwegian descent creates magnificent sculptures inspired from fine arts, mythology and sculptures in the ancient periods which he then casts with a dark, elegant twist resulting in minimal yet striking creations which you can’t keep your eyes off. His inherent dark but as well as their majestic and beautiful appearance resided with the enclosed childhood he had.

Xandt grew up around artists and creative beings, which is why he appears to create so effortlessly, using his creativity to the fullest potential. Not only that, he has a vision that speaks for his powerful three dimensional conceptual art; surprisingly, Xandt is for the most part, is self taught multidisciplinary artist. With formal training in graphic design. Xandt’s compelling collection of conceptual creations feature busts and skulls that are both symbols of art and humanity; composed of gold-plated brass, polymer, distressed black finish, and marble. The gold is a prominent element that adds an accent of terror to the work and symbolizes the sheer beauty of divine purity, but also it’s metallic coldness.

“I think that the main and most important aspects of my work are creativity and concept. Being permanently on the experimental side of thinking and creating, I seek to add to my skills with every piece I begin. Learning-By-Doing, this awfully overused term, applies to me just as well as Doing-By-Learning. The unison of knowledge and skill provides me with inspiration and a broad foundation to be used as a starting point for any kind of project. (Via Inkult)”

Brilliantly Creepy Gifs From Old Photographs by Kevin Weir

follow him on Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr.

Art director and designer Kevin Weir uses historical black and white photographs forgotten to time as the basis for his quirky—and slightly disturbing—animated GIFs. His path to online GIF superstardom began when he was in high school. He tells us that “my parents’ boss bought me a copy of Photoshop and I decided I wanted to be some kind of designer.” Having mastered the software, he found himself five years later “making black and white GIFs as a way to occupy myself during the downtime of an internship I had during grad school.” He shared the images on his Tumblr, Flux Machine where they quickly went viral.

Weir makes use of photographs he finds in the Library of Congress online archive, and is deeply drawn to what he calls “unknowable places and persons,” images with little connection to present day that he can use as blank canvas for his weird ideas. Perhaps it’s the nature of his imagination, or maybe a result of the medium’s limited frames of animation to communicate anything too serious, but despite the creepiness factor, it’s hard to not to smile at the absurdity of his ideas.
